Grateful Dead Meet-Up 2019
- Come one, come all! On Thursday, August 1, join Dead Heads in your neighborhood
and around the world when Trafalgar
Releasing and Rhino Entertainment celebrate the 9th Annual Grateful Dead Meet Up at the Movies. This global event features the previously unreleased June 17, 1991 concert from Giants Stadium. Widely
considered one of the greatest shows of the band's final decade of performing, 6/17/91 also sounds unlike any Dead show
you've ever heard as it was one of only two recorded on 48 track. Mixed by Jeffrey Norman in glorious surround sound with
video from the multi camera live edit, this will be the first time the Bruce Hornsby and Vince Welnick line-up has ever
appeared on the big screen.
Opening with a shocking "Eyes Of The World," the Dead were firing on all cylinders from the opening notes of the show, mixing beloved classics like " Truckin ’" and "Uncle John’s Band" with rarities including "Saint Of Circumstance," "Might As Well," "New Speedway Boogie," and "China Doll." But the real standout was the recurrence of "Dark Star," which wove in and out of the playlist, making no less than six distinct appearances and teases during the show. The Dead capped off the spectacular night with a perfect song to send the crowd on its way, The Band’s “The Weight.”
One night only, Thursday, August 1 at 7pm. Tickets are $10 and are on sale now via the ticketing link.
